The McLaren MP4-12C
Come and enjoy a touch of British engineering in our 5-Star Italian Racing Experience with the McLaren MP4-12C. This thrilling piece of technical innovation has pushed the boundaries of sports car development. This car not only has a powerful engine, bringing 625HP to the track, but also the ability to attack corners with precision. As with the McLaren F1, carbon fiber is used extensively in the vehicle to minimize weight.
Once you open the MP4’s insect-wing designed door there is a huge 9000-rpm tach and a center-pivoting shift paddle steering wheel. The leather and faux suede are sewn to Savile Row standards, bringing a touch of elegance to this super car. With a 4000-rpm spread between torque and horsepower peaks and 17.4 psi of boost on tap, the MP4’s 3.8-liter engine feels more like a strapping V-10 than a mini V-8.
The MP4 has two special weapons found in no other super car; a hydraulic suspension inhibits body roll so that it handles tight turns with a go-kart’s agility, and the rear airfoil springs to attention at the end of our straightaway under hard breaking.

Step 1 - Registration
When you arrive at Dream Racing, one of our hostesses will greet you and assist you in the registration process in our lounge. At this time you'll be asked to show a valid driver license.
Step 2 - Training Session
After registration it's time for an educational training session. One of our instructor will give you a quick lesson on the mechanics of the McLaren you are about to drive; explaining how to properly handle the car using correct driving technique around our track, as well as going through all the safety procedures.
STEP 3 - 3D Simulator Session
The next part of your training will take place in our 3D simulators. While getting comfortable with the controls of the car, you will train on an exact laser scanned replica of our track, so if you feel a bump in the simulator, the same bump exists out on the track.
STEP 4 - Driving Experience
Finally, the moment you’ve been waiting for: get behind the wheel of the McLaren MP4-12C, strap in and start your engine! You’re in control, it’s time to hit the track for 5 exhilarating laps around the Las Vegas Motor Speedway infield track.
STEP 5 - Cool off in our Lounge
After the adrenaline subsides, relax and unwind in our Dream Racing Lounge. If you purchased the onboard video prior to your driving experience you’ll be able to view it at this time in the lounge.
